Who We Are

Who We Are

Women’s Medical Fund (WMF) provides financial assistance to Wisconsinites who need abortions and cannot afford the full cost. As an all-volunteer, 501c3 nonprofit organization, WMF has been ensuring access to abortion since 1972.

Fund Abortion

No matter your zip code or income, every person deserves access to the health care they need. Due to extreme anti-abortion legislation and social and economic inequities, abortion access in Wisconsin is very restricted. WMF works to fill the gaps in abortion access by providing financial assistance to Wisconsin residents who need an abortion but cannot afford the full cost.

Build Power

Everyone loves someone who had an abortion. Women’s Medical Fund aims to shift the culture around abortion from stigma, isolation, and shame to love, community, and compassion. We know that the right to choose is not enough if so many people do not have access to that choice. We know that abortion access is one vital component of reproductive justice, so we are mobilizing folks on the ground to create the future we deserve.
